What if June and Morticia were sorority sisters and discovered that opposites do indeed attract?
What if they have weekly get-togethers to discuss child rearing, school boards, city council, household management, the hired help?
What if their children were also friends? Think of Wally and Pugsley blowing up abandoned train tracks and bridges for fun. Imagine Beaver being envious of Wednesday’s pet spider, Homer.
And what if Morticia was seeking a tactful way of giving June advice on keeping pets, since the Cleavers never seemed to be able to keep any pet more than a few days?
